Make scientists like you without leaving your chair

August 24, 2005

How? Distributed computing projects allow your to donate your CPU’s idle time to scientific research. You see, some research projects, such as Stanford University’s Folding@Home are excellent candidates for distributed computing because they (a) need hundreds of thousands of CPUs – far more than a supercomputer could provide, and (b) they don’t depend on constant communication between CPUs. So get off your lazy butt and contribute to one or more distributed computing projects:
